In this episode Bex talks about leaving Hay House, the largest mind body, spirit publisher in the world, due their choice to engage in racist and dangerous practices. She shares about the support (and lack thereof) she received after leaving, gives us a breakdown of how the publishing industry works and what authors experience, and she talks about her new equitable and transparent publishing company, Wheat Penny Press.
